Volunteers needed: 20-50 year old men and women
We are looking for men and women to participate in our study that aims to investigate the influence of repeated biopsies on inflammatory responses in adipose (fat) tissue.
We are looking for healthy, non-smoking individuals aged 20-50 who have a BMI of <40 kg.m2 and carry a little more weight that they’d like around the waist (waist circumference ≥94 cm/90 cm (men/Asian men) and ≥80 cm (women)).
If interested in taking part, volunteers will be invited to complete a 1 hr screening visit, 30 min familiarisation visit and a single 4 hr study visit.
During the study visit, we will collect 1 blood sample and 3 abdominal fat (adipose) biopsy samples.
Volunteers will be reimbursed for their time!
